Hildur Guðnadóttir ‎– Chernobyl (Music From The HBO Miniseries) - LP

Preminent soundtrack composer and virtuoso cellist tactfully mirrors the mood of HBO’s ‘Chernobyl’ docudrama in her crushingly dark ‘Music From The TV Series’
One of this year’s must-see bits of telly, ‘Chernobyl’ tells the ill-fated tale of the Soviet nuclear power station, its catastrophic end, and its fallout - both nuclear and political - thru a ruck of gurning British actors and Stellan Skarsgård.

Among the most memorable parts of the series,, is Hildur Guðnadóttir’s soundtrack, where she clearly relishes the opportunity to limn the series' portentous and overcast feel with sounds ranging from Mika Vainio-esque Geiger counter triggers to more typical cinematic strokes of her cello, as epitomised in the spine-chilling theme.
